WT Cafe Melba

Auckland posts: During the weekend, we ate brunch at a cafe. Food looks and tastes much, much better than here. Price was much higher too but since we were in another country, we just gave ourselves a treat but still we kept the cost of each meal for a person to be less than NZD25.

I ordered from the "Get Fit Fast" section in the menu: Selva’s Salmon – smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, bacon, avocado, spinach and kumara (sweet potato) - NZD20 (about MYR 55.50). I gave the bacon to my brunch partner.

Melba Grill: bacon, bratwurst sausages, hashbrown, mushrooms, vine tomato and eggs any style on organic grain toast. Sunny side up eggs were selected. See how thick the butter is. I think the tomatoes were missing but we didn't notice it at that time. NZD20 too. Which meal would you prefer?

Flat White (small cup) - NZD4 (about MYR11)

  3. I enjoyed these very much when I was in NZ, would go for the Big Breakfast most of the time - my friend would insist that I settle for nothing less...but I was only there for around two weeks - I think after some time, I would be longing for our Sibu kampua mee or our nasi lemak or char kway teow. Old habits die hard. LOL!!!

  10. Nice breakfasts! I always like to eat big breakfasts like that and skip lunch.

    What a pity you are not sharing all the sightseeing places! You know that would lure me to visit too!!!

    1. Ah, this is brunch so it covers lunch. I didn't go sightseeing, just eat and go to office only so no sightseeing places to share.
